+1 (well, some may have importance as a bike connection :), depending on
your definition of "social importance")

the regular road network are all the roads that you take when you want to
go to something that is not just fields, woods or similar. If a road is the
only way to a few houses, to a village, or is a road that people take to go
from one village to the other, it is part of the road network and not just
a track.

why would we explicitly exclude private roads? Some private (likely toll)
roads are very important in the road network. (Some or many) tracks by the
way, depending on the area, may be public (by ownership).
